Members of TOPS #WI0751 Rhinelander chapter recently named Beth Marquardt as their new leader. Other officers were also elected, including co-leader (Margaret Rasmussen), secretary (Kathy Cline), and treasurer (Pat Gluch).

"They are responsible for inspiring and motivating members to reach and maintain their weight loss goals through TOPS® educational programs," according to a club press release. "In addition to the recent election of new officers, Mrs. Marquardt has appointed Karen Brunell as Weight Recorder and Karen Scholtes as Assistant Weight Recorder.

Collectively, TOPS® members in North America lose about 300 tons each year, the release states.
